the washington post, and one from what we played on msnbc earlier on jansing & company. >> well, it is a big deal as it was originally recordednd mr. hoyer in the whip meeting this morning mentioned it, so if mr. norquist was taking a position that is reasonable that expiring tax cuts under existing law were not tax increases that creates a lot of breathing room for us and head room. >> a lot. >> but my understanding is that he has gone back on that, and so revenues have to be part of it, and, you know, when i talk candidly to many of the republican colleagues, they understand that. and they are worried about the revenues and not getting the cuts, and there is anxiety on the net level of negotiation, but most folks understand that when we are spending 22% of the gdp and collecting revenues lower than the eisenhower era at 15%, that doesn't work. >> congressman, under the gun today? if not today, a deal by friday? what do you think? >> well, honestly, i don't know, but what i do know is that we have to have a deal and we cannot allow america to default. if you are eric cantor and want to have more

enough to get a compromise and to get it through both houses. that remains a big question this afternoon, and -- and it doesn't seem like we've got a clear answer on really where that goes yet. >> all right. let's get out of the beltway for a second here, kate, because we've got a poll today showing 62% of americans now favor raising the debt ceiling one way or another, either with or without debt reduction. got a block of senate republicans accepting higher revenues, ie taxes, as part of tax reduction. are these holdout house republicans becoming more isolated, and are they begin to feel the heat to compromise here? >> reporter: it's hard to say. we've talked to some very conservative republicans about that, and they stand very firmly in their belief that they do not think this a tax increase should be part of any debt deal because they don't think that it's good for the economy, and they say many of them were elected in 2010 really basically on this point, that they need to get the country's fiscal house in order and not continue spending, spending, spending, that they should be reduci
